This one's for you Tee!

So what do you do when a friend makes a suggestion and we turn it into a full-fledged card making drive.. Aaah well, the joys of friendship.. One never says NO to any idea.. Just tweak it around to make it more appealing...

The woman's day inspirational card idea was Tejal's and it appealed to me immensely... It does make sense to make something for a crafter friend who has inspired you in some way and what better way to show appreciation than do a post about it...

So, I start off with probably my most fav person... Tejal... Doing anything for her is a pleasure as well as a very daunting task... but what the hell, she is now used to my eccentric behavior and has accepted the fact that I am beyond repair... :P

This card is dedicated to you Tejal- for all you have done... taught me everything I know so far about stamping... My masking class over the BBM was epic... and all the photographs back and forth each day just teaches me something new.... An honest opinion about my work and not worrying whether I would feel bad about it ( I do not feel bad... pushes me to try better and impress you... tough ask but am up for the game.. :D... SO thank you so so so much for all you do.. not just for me but for a lot of people... I know there are a lot of us who have greatly benefited from your help...

So, I made an all stamped card for Tejal  no surprises there), Used butterflies on it (cheeky grin)... and used glitter (uncontrollable laughter).... Oh yes I am quite predictable that ways... :P but how could I not incorporate the three things which Tejal is known for... :D...Tee I am awaiting a comment for this one....


So, for the very first time I tried triple layer stamping... I have been wanting to do this for ages but I guess got the correct motivation now....

I loved how this card came about and pretty quickly too. I did waste some paper because I could not find the right stamp for it.. Finally went for my BG stamp... and this is it... :D

card stock=> Fabriano elle erre, Fabriano brustro for the butterflies and locally purchased 
stamps=> HA flourish BG stamp and Antique engravings
Ink=> Unity Moulin Rouge which I got from Ujjwal.
Fevicryl 3-D glitter glue.

Khush

Khush awesome work! You really are a daredevil! One tip, next time try using dimensional tape (double sided foamy one), in that way the result will be more dramatic I tell ya...
